    "Continuing to run" straight to the base in FED and NCAA can be INT.

    I think he should have gone to his right -- but he did get it right.

    Maybe.  Maybe not.
     
    I've seen "normal" slides with the hands up where there's clearly no intent to interfere and no one says a word.
    I've seen slides with the hands up where there's clearly intent to at least put some kind of thought into F4/6's head that there might be something in the way.

    I agree with Maven and Johnny, and that's my point.

    The problem with calling "Time"  in the OP is that the ball is in fair territory.  So, if it hit only the knob, then calling "Time" is the last thing you want to do.
     
    No matter what you do here, the "other" side is going to be convinced you got it wrong.  And, honestly, there's no way to be sure we got it right.

    I didn't watch the video, but based on the description this is a good example of what is meant by " a good umpire is one you don't notice."
     
    He stopped a little potential problem (no one noticed him) before it became a big problem (and someone would have noticed him).

    A.  On the line is more-preferable than off the line.  Both are used.
    B.  Why didn't you discuss it between games "Hey -- I noticed you were on the lne.  I'm usually off the line.  What's your thought process on being there?  I prefer off the line because, ...."

    Some MLB ump was once asked in a clinic about a play similar to the OP.  His answer: "It hit the hand first."

    Either because the umpires on the game take Maven's approach or because they missed the call or because they had different judgment on where the runner would have ended up.

    Maybe you're right.  I see him with his hands up, and I thought he was making (or about to make) the OBS / award call, but maybe it's just the "dead ball" (sic) call.  If U3 doesn't have the call, I'd give first crack to PU.
    Not a big deal since there are no other runners and all the umpires should have an opinion on the play (this one is obvious, but you can conceive of a similar play where maybe some discussion is needed), but I'd rather U2 wait to see if U3 / PU had it before stepping up with the point.

    I hate to disagree with Maven, but I have to this time.
     
    As I read your phrasing, I do NOT think it's identical to the rule; and I disagree with your ruling in your example (BR 3' from second being returned to first).
    I did not go back and re-watch the OP, so I have no comment on the ruling in that play.

    Echo "time" -- sure (although with no other runners, there's really not much need for that, either).  Point R3 to home -- not so much.

    Why is U2 signaling the award at :23?

    I think that even if he was lower, he would have been hit -- just on the upper part of the mask instead of the lower part of the mask.

    Great comments by the announcers.  Not.
     
    I'm sorry I messed up and left the sound on.
